Mad Bastard founder Rob Harris Dead.

Post by donny » Mon May 16, 2016 7:56 am

I have some very bad news on Saturday, That Rob Harris was killed in a motor cycle accident in Ontario. He started the Mad Bastard Rally through his on line motor cycle magazine "CMG". Studio Cycle had taken over the rally last year, because Rob could not find the time to organize the Rally while living out east. He will be missed by all the motorcycle and scooter riders in Canada. I hope next Mad Bastard Rally there will be some type of memorial for Rob. :(
presently enjoy riding a Ruckus and a Super 9. Tinkering with a Riva 180 and a couple of old Puch SV's. In the off season I enjoy a 1999 Polaris Indy 600 XLT Touring and a 2014 Artic Cat Prowler side by side

Sorry to hear of your loss. I have never met him, but I assume he was fun to be around.
Someday I would like to attend the Mad Bastard Rally.
RIP Rob Harris.

Yes He was a great guy to be around, he loved motorcycles and there riders. I have been in all but 1 mad bastard rally and Rob raised a lot of money for children charities with the Mad Bastatrd Rallies. His on line magazine "CMG" will carry on his memory!

I was lucky enough to meet him on more then just at the MBSR. When ever he was in the GTA at a show I would go just to say Hi and talk which he was more then happy to do. Great man sad times the next MBSR and Fundy Rally are for him.
